Sonnet C.

“Success is only meaningful and enjoyable if it feels like your own.” – Michelle Obama

If thou art to be compared to chocolate cake,

Thou art more sweet;

Your tenderness and delicacy,

Would by far surpass but doth any treat.

Sometimes one may be tempted with other goods,

But thine shall always be the one for me.

My love for you is always a-fresh

For our passion shallt never go old and crusty.

Always will thou be so sweet,

Indeed even more so than a crêpe, saccharine,

Time shallt not spill the sugars of our hearts

Forever we shall stay seventeen.

No matter of time, or space, or life, or desire,

My heart will always belong to thou’s entire.
